George Lucas: The 'Titanic' of Gaming is Coming

The big game of the next five years will focus on “actual relationships instead of shooting people.”
In stark contrast to today’s blockbusters, Lucas feels the next big thing will be something quite different. (E3, George Lucas)

Japan is full of the games he talks about, somebody just needs to do them in a way that can appeal to the west.

Great Lucas, now add real emotion to your films.

Even then, since when did Geoge Lucas become a fucking messiah and analyst of gaming when he hates gaming? He's a washout of a director and I'd have to ask, when was his last good movie? At that, how could a biased old man think his opinion is valid about the gaming industry without it being clouded and blinded with ignorance?

"Because you’ve got actual relationships instead of shooting people.”

I just love this statement. These two just remind me of the average gamer who only buys cod. They think that games can't be taken seriously because all you do is shoot people and never form bonds with characters.

I advise both of them to play games such as The Walking Dead and The Last of Us, and then come and talk to me about games not forming "actual relationships" with characters.

What a bunch of has beens and George Lucas has done nothing except for Star Wars and now he thinks he's some sort of an incredible director whom everyone looks up to. What a complete joke.

Don't forget Heavy Rain. Pretty much one of the best when it comes to character connection.
ainsz  +   901d ago
I mostly agree. But the acting of a small number of characters was intolerable.

I thought gaming can't tell stories? what happened now you want to tell stories in games? what a bunch of hypocrites.

GTA style open world Star Wars game. With different planets, galaxies and races. Space travel like wing commander/ privateer. Character creation like on Skyrim, with options for 3rd or 1st person like Skyrim.

Options to become a Jedi, Sith, bounty hunter, etc.

So what Star Wars The Old Republic should have been?
WorldGamer  +   901d ago
Yea, all real time combat. Basically making your own Star Wars story. Would be epic.
Timesplitter14  +   901d ago
What the hell does Lucas know about games? I bet he thinks making any kind of game without shooting would be groundbreaking and enlightening but it's actually been done many times in the past

The "Titanic of gaming" released 16 years ago. It was called Final Fantasy VII. FFVII's story was better, music was better and I cried far more tears playing it than I ever did watching Titanic.

The real question is when will the "Final Fantasy VII of movies" come out?
stuntman_mike  +   901d ago
just show him some of the reactions journey got, people were in actual tears over that game and not in a bad way. that game affected so many people. and it was one of the most simple of premises.
The Metal Gear series says hi George!

Quit being myopic, I'd love for something to radically change gaming for the better. Most of it is just sports, jumping, or shooting/slashing people, AI's, or things.

You guys sound like the same people Henry Ford referred to when quoted saying, "If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horses" instead of something they couldn't imagine like a car.

Games can be so much more.

Actually, this wasn't the most stupid thing he said today...

Not that I really think his Titanic comment is stupid... At some point a game aimed at the female audience will succeed at at a ridiculous pace and the industry will do what it always does... Copy it into oblivion.
Nocando  +   900d ago
Does he say Titanic as in being huge? Or that something that will fail miserably? Terrible choice of words.
lzim  +   900d ago
It is silly to say it in a positive light because Activision already makes billions on Call of Duty and World of Warcraft.

Both the Titanic and Avatar's of video games belong to Activision.

To say that both will be trumped in the coming generation is just as silly because DUH. That's why they are being built. Any limitations are in the hands mostly of Microsoft and stupid policies.

To say that a big name AAA video game will fail.. arguably that already happened, in SimCity and it happens often.
lzim  +   900d ago
So one director says Hollywood is only so many blockbuster flops away from imploding while another say video games will finally move on from just being murder simulators.

I'd say Lucas needs to stay behind the camera but he already quit that..
